Further details indoors

The spacious living/dining room has a newly-installed fully fitted kitchen area at one end and an attractive wood-burning fire with comfortable sofas at the other. The large utility room houses washing machine, drying and ironing equipment, a fridge-freezer and plenty of storage space.

Downstairs are two well-appointed double bedrooms, one with a king-size bed. Upstairs is a large double bedroom and a twin-bedded/king-size room with an additional twin-bedded room leading off it. All bedrooms have spacious wardrobes and chests of drawers. There are fans in the bedrooms and the living-room to relieve the heat of summer nights. There are two large bathrooms, one downstairs with bath, separate shower, wash-basin and toilet, and one upstairs, with over-bath shower, wash-basin and toilet. There is also a cot and high-chair for your little one.

The lounge area opens on to a glorious covered terrace with table and chairs for al fresco eating. For an evening in, there's satellite French and English TV, a selection of DVDs, videos, CDs and music tapes, and various card and board games. There's an iPod docking station for your own music too. We also have a library of classics, modern novels and books about the region.

Further details outdoors

The private 10 by 5 metre swimming pool has a large patio with sunbeds, table, chairs and sunshades and there is plenty of natural shade too. The pool is fitted with a special cover for the safety of small children.

The garden also has a table-tennis table, boules piste and plenty of space for other garden games. There is substantial parking space.

Abundant flora and fauna are on display in the garden, including spectacular butterflies like the scarce swallowtail and birds such as the unusual-looking hoopoe with its crested head. You'll find binoculars in the house.

Beyond the large garden is the 'pâtis' (common land) where lovely wild flowers are to be found, including many varieties of wild orchid.

Within a hundred metres from the house, you can see the Roque Corbieres and our beautiful local gorge. A narrow path winds its way over rocky terrain and through delicate undergrowth down to the stream where you'll find a recently-restored 'lavoir' where the locals used to do their washing.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The Midi-Pyrenees is a vast south-western region of France with a great climate, beautuful and varied countryside, historic architecture and a relatively small population. Caylus is in the département of Tarn-et-Garonne, and more specifically the historic area of Quercy, with its incredible diversity of landscape and rich cultural history. Think of lush green hillsides, dramatic limestone gorges, picturesque fortified mediaeval villages and chateaux. Spot the many different designs of the 'pigeonniers' characteristic of the area.

Close by is St Antonin Noble Val, so-named due to its situation in a valley deep in a spectacular gorge carved by the river Aveyron. The mairie in St Antonin is reputed to be the oldest in France, and another claim to fame is that the film of 'Charlotte Gray' was filmed in its ancient narrow streets.

Many other picturesque villages and towns such as Penne, Montpezat-de-Quercy, Najac, Cordes-sur-Ciel, Bruniquel, Lauzerte, St Cirq Lapopie and Albi are a short drive away. For a longer outing, the incredible Millau Bridge over the Gorges du Tarn is a two-hour drive away.

The people of the region are renowned for generosity of spirit and hospitality to visitors. The pace of life is leisurely with everything stopping for the traditional two-hour lunch. Local specialities include goose and duck dishes, tasty breads, cheeses and mouth-watering fruit, not to mention the produce of the many vineyards.

The domains and chateaux of the Cahors and Gaillac wine regions are within easy striking distance. Gaillac perlé, a dry white wine with a slight tang, is a favourite of ours. Do sample the local Coteaux de Quercy wines too, red, white and rosé, all delicious.

Caylus

Caylus, a few kilometres from our house, is a mediaeval village nestling in the valley of the river Bonnette, a tributary of the Aveyron. There is a beautiful square and church with a renowned wooden sculpture of Christ by Ossip Zadkine, a contemporary of Picasso's. You'll find a select choice of restaurants and bars, perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. If you're feeling more energetic there are tennis courts, and plenty of walking and cycling trails through the gorgeous countryside.

The twice-weekly Caylus market offers local seasonal produce, and there are supermarkets and other shops for all your holiday needs. Nearby St Antonin is renowned for its bustling Sunday morning market, a treat for all visitors. St Antonin is also a centre for canoeing, kayaking, rock-climbing, pot-holing and hang-gliding. And there are plenty of opportunities nearby for other activities such as fishing, mountain-biking and horse-riding.

If you love art, it is well worth visiting the Toulouse-Lautrec museum in Albi and the Musée Ingres in Montauban. `There are also regular modern art exhibitions in the nearby Abbaye de Rouergue, as well as smaller local artists' galleries in nearby villages.

While in Albi, don't miss the impressive red-brick cathedral. Toulouse, an hour's drive away, is France's fourth largest city and also a centre of aeronautical and space technology. A visit to La Cité de l'Espace is a must for all ages.

Summer festivals are held in many villages and towns in the summer months. Of particular note are the Cahors Blues Festival and the Montauban Jazz Festival, both held every July. The ancient village of Bruniquel hosts several festivals, including a sausage festival! Nearby Penne stages 'son et lumiere' focused on its dramatic ruined chateau. Caussade, famed for hat manufacture, holds a hat show in July.

As well as the activities mentioned above, children will enjoy outings to the acrobatics centre in St Antonin, the caves of the Grotte de Bosc and the Grotte de Pech Merle, full of stalagmites and stalactites, the 'ferme animalière' near Molières, the water-park at Albi and the steam train at Monclar de Quercy.

For teenagers wanting to socialise in the evening, there is a disco in the nearby village of Septfonds.
